Cisco appears to have a limited engagement with climate change policy. They appear to be positively involved in conversations surrounding U.S. upgrades to the U.S. electricity grid to facilitate renewable energy inputs. They are also signatories to the Trillion Ton Communique which advocates for the decarbonization of the energy sector and supports a strong UN Treaty on emissions reductions. Cisco is a member of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and their CEO Chuck Robbins is a direct member of Business Roundtable, two organizations that appear to be resisting climate policy in the United States.

How to Read our Relationship Score Map

In this section, we depict graphically the relationships the corporation has with trade associations, federations, advocacy groups and other third parties who may be acting on their behalf to influence climate change policy. Each of the columns above represents one relationship the corporation appears to have with such a third party. In these columns, the top, dark section represents the strength of the relationship the corporation has with the influencer. For example if a corporation's senior executive also held a key role in the trade association, we would deem this to be a strong relationship and it would be on the far left of the chart above, with the weaker ones to the right. Click on these grey shaded upper sections for details of these relationships. The middle section contains a link to the organization score details of the influencer concerned, so you can see the details of its climate change policy influence. Click on the middle sections for for details of the trade associations. The lower section contains the organization score of that influencer, the lower the more negatively it is influencing climate policy.
